Can Texas turn blue in 2020? The writer thinks so and so do I.

Ted Cruz won his last election, but saw a 13 point margin drop from his first election to 2018. That's a 13 point pro-Democratic shift. Other seats flipped. #SundayThoughts #TurnTexasBlue 1/7…

Support and volunteer for @mjhegar - an amazing Democratic candidate running to replace John Cornyn in the U.S. Senate.

To paraphrase, "Texans deserve a Senator who represents their values: strength, courage, independence."
That's not Cornyn. #txlege 3/7

Shame on DeepState #ForeignPolicy Journal. For Years #Turkey has been hosting 3+ Million #refugees from #Syria (Not like EU concentration camps accepting a few thousands!). They deported a few 1000s without documents & this attack?! - - -…
An Amazing Example Of Distorted, Spun & Twisted Reporting for “Targeted” Attacks Against #Turkey. #FP should ask #EU & #USA: How many refugees from #Syria Are you willing to host & house in US/EU? And then print the “official response” for all to see!!!!!
Let’s Get The Facts Straight On #Syria Refugees In #Turkey: 1-Millions provided Housing;2- Millions Provided Healthcare; 3- Million+ W/ Work Permits; 4-All Children Provided With Public Education; 5- 10s Of 1000s In #Turkey Universities ...6- With 99% of #Turks Hospitable to Them

Dall'11 settembre in poi negli USA ci sono stati più americani uccisi negli attacchi terroristici interni rispetto a quelli internazionali. E il terrorismo interno è sempre più motivato dall'ideologia del suprematismo bianco. Fonte: FBI.
#ElPasoShooting è solo l'ultimo di questi.
#ElPasoShooting è l'ottava strage più grave nella storia moderna USA:

58 - Las Vegas
49 - Pulse nightclub
32 - Virginia Tech
27 - Sandy Hook
26 - Sutherland Springs
23 - Luby's Cafe
21 - San Ysidro
*20 - El Paso Walmart*
18 - University of Texas
17 - Parkland
14 - San Bernardino
#ElPasoShooting è anche il più grave attentato terroristico contro gli ispanici nella storia americana. L'assalitore ha attaccato una città di confine, e le autorità stanno verificando se sia l'autore di un manifesto suprematista comparso online poco prima dell'attentato.

⛔️La #sparatoria a #ElPaso (#Texas). Il Texas è uno degli Stati Usa dove è più facile acquistare #armi. Vige il "shall issue" quindi compiuti 18 anni: 1) Non serve una specifica licenza, nemmeno per fucili d'assalto; 2) Non vi sono particolari controlli; 3) si può girare armati.
⛔️#Sparatoria a #ElPaso #Texas
In Italia tra chi chiede "leggi permissive" sulle #armi c'è Firearms United. E' rappresentata da @UNARMI_IT, sì proprio l'associazione con cui #Salvini ha firmato il "patto d'onore sulle armi". ➡️
Ecco uno dei loro annunci.
@unarmi_it Queste associazioni con cui #Salvini è in contatto (Firearms United e @UNARMI_IT) dicono di rappresentare "i diritti" dei #legalidetentoridiarmi, ma hanno un'obiettivo ben preciso: Introdurre in Italia il "diritto assoluto" per i cittadini a portare #armi➡️

THREAD: Congressman @WillHurd's surprise announcement yesterday that he will not be seeking reelection in #TX23 sheds light particularly on two of several points here:

Hurd is the only Black Republican member of Congress, and the Republican Party under Trump is not becoming more
@WillHurd diverse, or inclusive, or representative of Texas values, and for that matter, American values. This also signals that Texas values are breaking through today and the Republican Party is seeing the writing on the walls.
@WillHurd #Texas is one of 5 majority-minority states, which means that the majority of Texans are people of color. The majority of Texans are women, and 350,000 Texans turn 18 every year — that is over 1 million Texans in just three years who are becoming legal adults.

@tedcruz you were excellent on #FoxandFriends this morning. I hear you’re having problems with the radical #Squad. You said there aren’t enough people in Congress that will stand up to them. Let’s fix that #Texas. I am running for Congress #TX33 and those radicals don’t scare me!
The Founders of this great nation knew it was only a matter of time before Tyranny reared it’s ugly head so they gave us the #1A #2A as the single greatest defenses against oppression. Radicals will continue to attack free speech in the name of fairness as long as we let them.
I will never stop defending our nation, The Constitution, and our freedom no matter the personal cost. They are bullies that use identity politics & PC to spread their message of hate. I am here to tell you that the message of Compassion, Patriotism, and Freedom is much stronger.

The FBI raided Texas Federal Wellness Center in Edinburg, #Texas on Thursday.

It was reported that the OIG, USPS, Dept of Labor, and DHS were also involved in the FBI investigation and looks like they provide medical services for Federal Government.…
The center's website advertises services for Federal employees, such as for Border Patrol, Customs, Military, and Postal Service employees.

Just a guess, but I bet it involves more government #HealthcareFraud.…

1/ Several hundred migrants a day spill out of overcrowded border detention centers that no longer have the bandwidth to handle them. We went to San Antonio to see where they go afterwards. Here’s what we found out. #texas #border
2/ Many of the migrants end up at a new migrant resource center in San Antonio, hastily opened inside of an old Quiznos to accommodate the influx. The center has served more than 20,000 in the past three months.
3/ Often, these migrants have no money and no place to go. After his journey to San Antonio, one migrant only had $2 left; he needed to get from there to Portland, Maine by Tuesday to make it to his check-in with immigration officials.

.@CBP detects mass African migration in #Texas. via @FredLucasWH @DailySignal
“This is less a result of conditions in Africa and more a result of the dynamics of illegal immigration across the southern border,” Joshua Meservey, senior policy analyst for Africa and the Middle East at The Heritage Foundation, told The Daily Signal.
“I suspect the Africans we are seeing is a result of word circulating that traveling in groups means the odds are better,” Meservey said. “African migration is still far less common into the United States than in Europe.”

Il y a 2-3 ans, j'ai commencé à "collectionner" et à renseigner dans une base de données des pochettes de disques dans l'optique de rédiger sur #spacefiction un billet portant sur l'usage des cartes (et globes) sur ces dernières... Corpus de pas loin 200 pochettes à ce jour ! 1/4
Et puis, le temps me manquant, j'ai mis le projet de côté... Je le prendrai très certainement plus tard, et d’ailleurs, de temps en temps, quand je tombe dessus, je rajoute encore des pochettes au dossier. 2/4
Mais en attendant, plutôt que de les laisser sur mon disque dur, j'ai décidé de les partager ici et de me lancer dans un #thread au long cours. Il y a des albums de tous les styles de musiques et des artistes de tous les niveaux. 3/4
